EDITORS’ NOTES

As the London grime scene's most visible export, Dizzee Rascal represented for his entire nation with Boy In Da Corner. Delivering hiccuping, tightly constructed flows over skeletal bleep-and-thump beats, he's a revelatory presence on the searing "I Luv U" and "Fix Up, Look Sharp." But it’s the album’s thematic depth that sets it apart. Dizzee was still a teenager upon its release, yet he sounds wise beyond his years on the world-weary "Sittin' Here," musing about the days when life "was just a bit more sweet."
